    Your Phone would better.

  2. Dark Diamond on January 25, 2023 at 3:24 am

    This is so good

  3. Anton V. on January 25, 2023 at 3:25 am

    Indeed, phone has better image stabilization, even better than full frame Sony cameras

  4. notanewbie dude on January 25, 2023 at 3:27 am

    Also if you don’t like your current phone’s camera, you can pick up a cheap international one like the Pocophone F1 that might not work well on most US carriers, but works excellently for taking pictures and videos.

    I really watch in 240p! 😜
    (And we will not talk about where I watch ever again!) πŸ˜›

    Great video as usual and love the actual demos.

    Thanks for the video and take care, Bill in Utah

  6. BK42 on January 25, 2023 at 3:32 am

    Just another great video πŸ™‚

  7. ProxUrAimz on January 25, 2023 at 3:36 am

    5 years ago? Bitch I was shooting everything with my sgh-720 Samsung back in good old 2005 >:C Just because nobody knew phones existed until Apple shitted them out doesn’t mean they didn’t exist πŸ˜‚

  9. Duward Angle on January 25, 2023 at 3:39 am

    You got this idea from me didn’t you?

  10. Superrock93 on January 25, 2023 at 3:39 am

    I started to use my old cellphone a few months ago, it has some nice video and photo quality (1080p and 1080p 60fps on videos and 23MP on photos), it’s a Sony Xperia X Compact and left my actioncam for other things (like going underwater or for when is a little dangerous to use a cellphone). 😁

    Nice as always…πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

  13. Leah Olvera on January 25, 2023 at 3:40 am

    This is off topic from this video but what adapter can I use for audio for the onreal 4k action camera

  14. The Colonel JJ on January 25, 2023 at 3:42 am

    Hoowa!

  15. Carlos Jaymalin II on January 25, 2023 at 3:42 am

    Keep up the great work TEDD!πŸ–’

  16. Anvar Lite on January 25, 2023 at 3:44 am

    I had a Sony FDR-X3000R but I lost it last year. Should I get a Sony FDR-X3000R or wait for the next Sony action cam?

  17. Mayank Gohel on January 25, 2023 at 3:46 am

    Hey, there is also another action camera from "Kodak PIXPRO SP1 Action Cam"
    Please review it….its of $179.

  18. shellshocked on January 25, 2023 at 3:46 am

    You should make a video about the geekam 4k action camera

  19. marin guic on January 25, 2023 at 3:49 am

    yo man since you are into tecjnology and stuff what do you think it’s better to buy:boya by-m1 and boya by-mm1 microphone, fyutech vimble 2 smartphone stabilazer or eken action cam?

  20. William Kelley on January 25, 2023 at 3:49 am

    Any recommendation for an inexpensive but passably usable mic for a cell phone specifically a Google pixel XL? Could a lapel attached mic work well or am I better off getting a mic that attaches to my gimbal?

  21. smzxe YT on January 25, 2023 at 3:49 am

    At 1080p the stabilization of s9 isπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ
    Who uploads 4k videos too much s9 for me

  22. Jet Ski on January 25, 2023 at 3:54 am

    is their a camera that can beat a my pixel 3 phone for $140?

  23. TAJARIB SAUD on January 25, 2023 at 3:54 am

    I agree with you action cameras are awesome. Everybody should have an action cameraπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

  24. Peyt Talks Daily on January 25, 2023 at 3:54 am

    I got an action camera but . I still use my phone to record videos as convienience

  25. Lekks25 on January 25, 2023 at 3:57 am

    You helped me choose the FDR x3000 over the Gopro 6 recently, I believe carrying both a smartphone and an action cam for vlogging is optimal, as you said, they have great synergy, the cellphone is more fragile, and you don’t want to drain the battery.

    Both are situational, I discovered a little trick you can do with the smartphone. If you are in a crowded store (I live in Japan) and worry about annoying people with your camera, you can just wear some headphones and pretend to be in a videocall, more covert than with your action cam.

  26. Sean Page on January 25, 2023 at 3:58 am

    The one big Advantage with the S8 and S9 series Samsung is because they have the dual camera you can either do no depth-of-field or you can do a depth of field and just tap on what you want in focus and it can use the two lenses to adjust for that

  27. Robb Bell on January 25, 2023 at 4:02 am

    I totally agree, a phone can be used in place of a regular camera now days. I own a Note 8 and love the 4 k quality of both photo and videos.

  28. The Racing Line on January 25, 2023 at 4:03 am

    For me smartphones haven’t replaced my dslr but I can understand why it has for others

  29. Paulius Chockevicius on January 25, 2023 at 4:04 am

    what selfie stick would you recommend which has the strongest grip of the phone? Do you know any that lock in the phone onto the selfie stick instead of the loose spring holder?

  30. Justin Treptow-Miller on January 25, 2023 at 4:04 am

    Hahaha. You did it, thought you were going to have a clear winner, but nope you went with "it depends"! Take that internet!

  31. Anton V. on January 25, 2023 at 4:05 am

    Good video

  32. Explore Out There on January 25, 2023 at 4:06 am

    why didn’t you go with the s9+ with dual cameras?

  33. Mark Attardo on January 25, 2023 at 4:13 am

    Good comparison!

  34. Axel Zaragoza on January 25, 2023 at 4:14 am

    I vlog on my phone

  35. TonyG410 Poker on January 25, 2023 at 4:14 am

    My YouTube Channel features a lot,of low light situations (Casinos) I use my IPhone X strictly & think it’s better than my GoPro

  36. Becker's Rs on January 25, 2023 at 4:16 am

    Did I tell you that your new background is a lot nicer than crazy ring light set up and grey background?=)

  37. Gasparilla Media on January 25, 2023 at 4:16 am

    Hey TEDD, did you ever try the Removu K1 for Vlogging? It kinda does what you want and is not all that bad indoors when recording @ 4k / 30

  38. Ooga Booga on January 25, 2023 at 4:17 am

    Your intro is bad

  39. Rociola here on January 25, 2023 at 4:18 am

    Remember me

  40. fuchow fried rice on January 25, 2023 at 4:18 am

    personally , a high end smartphone has a more sophisticated image processing than an action cam, physical and electronic image stability….twin mics, noise cancelling…and the ability to stream over network…and just the ease of use…..even in low light scenarios……hook up a power bank and a selfie stick, u got yourself a perfect light weight device….especially for the IRL streamers on twitch πŸ‘

  41. Tech on January 25, 2023 at 4:20 am

    I would just get a cell phone. It has a great camera, but that is only the beginning. You also have a movie player, music player, internet browser, gaming device, and so much more. An action camera is ONLY a camera.
